V went to school today as a spider.
Being a mom made me a creative person.
You see I’m not the most creative person in my family. My mom knows how knit, sew, draw, and has a green thumb. My sister Bernadette is the artist she can create artsy stuff making use of materials available on hand, she plays the guitar, knows how to draw, a good singer and dancer. My brother he’s good at fixing things and learned how to draw and played the guitar because Bernadette taught him how. As for me well I like to tell my siblings what I want and they happily (forced) to do it for me (perks of being the eldest).
Everything changed though when V came to my life. I wanted to learn how to bake yummy cakes and make them pretty which led me to learn how to work with fondant. The joy I saw in his eyes when I made his Dragon cake was priceless (he’s actually planning his 5th birthday cake now).
I once taught that I’m not the person who can stay in the house and be all domesticated, but alas here I am a stay at home mom. I easily gave up 8 years of corporate life and be a housewife and I’m happy with my decision (I can no longer see myself going back).
Why all this drama?
I made an effort and made this spider costume for V. My mom will sure be proud.
